The October 5, 2018 speech by Senator Collins showed the huge gap between “moderate” Republicans (sometimes known as RINOs) and Democrats. While Senator Collins agrees with Democrats on key issues like Roe v Wade, and gay marriage, she clearly parts with them by demonstrating great respect for the Constitution. Unlike Democrats, she appears to realize that our entire system of laws will collapse if people are not innocent until proven guilty.
Good for the Senator, and good for our country.
Of course, as I write this on the morning of October 6 before the actual vote, the possibility still exists that a Republican Senator will decide that he or she wants to be the new “Maverick” to replace John McCain. A no vote that rejects the nomination would make the offending Senator a hero of the left and the media. Insane.
